A number of K4s locomotives had streamlining applied over the years. All were later removed restoring the locomotives to their original appearance. In February 1936 locomotive #3768 was clad in a shroud designed by famed industrial designer Raymond Loewy. This highly concealing enveloping streamlined casing hid most of the functionality of the steam locomotive leading to its nickname of “The Torpedo” by train crews. At first the locomotive was not painted in standard Dark Green Locomotive Enamel (DGLE) but instead in a bronze color. It was later refinished in DGLE. A matching tender ran on unusual six-wheel trucks. Like most streamlined steam locomotives the shrouds impeded maintenance and the covers over the wheels were later removed. For a time the locomotive was the preferred engine for the Broadway Limited train. We’re proud to offer this iconic steam locomotive to our serious PRR modelers.
